CEMEX brings in 50 new health and hygiene protocols to combat COVID-19

CEMEX has implemented more than 50 new hygiene and safety protocols to minimise the risk of COVID-19 contagion across its global cement, ready-mix concrete, and aggregates operations.

The company says the protocols are based on national and international guidelines established by experts in the field, such as the World Health Organization (WHO), and in strict adherence to local health regulations.

They include the company’s Personal Hygiene Protocol, Physical Distancing Protocol, Screening at Workplace Protocol, CEMEX Truck Drivers Protocol, Workplace Cleaning Protocol, and Commuting To and From Work Protocol.

CEMEX adds that its core businesses of cement, ready-mix concrete and aggregates have, by nature, a low density of employees in the work area, so the risk of transmission is less probable.

“Due to this pandemic, we have complemented our existing protocols by developing and implementing special protocols and guidelines to protect our employees, communities, and customers from COVID-19 risk,” said Fernando González, CEO of CEMEX.

“Additionally, we are constantly updating and improving our protocols to be in line with official health regulations.”

CEMEX says that the construction industry provides critical infrastructure components necessary during the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes maintaining essential transport infrastructures, such as bridges and roads, repairing existing hospital infrastructure, creating new temporary emergency hospitals and healthcare facilities, and maintaining society’s basic needs such as water and energy, among many other fundamental needs.
